Jules Lawrence BScN RN CPedN (C)
Jules first started at Sherbrooke Lake in 2000 as a junior camper. Since then she has grown as a CIT, Counsellor, Christian Ed, Leadership Team, Assistant Director, Director, a Camp Council Member and currently sits on the board of directors for the Camping Association of NS & PEI.
Working with kids at camp inspired Jules to dedicate her life to working with children. Following her graduation from St.FX’s Nursing program, Jules went on and worked as a camp nurse for Brigadoon Village followed by Diabetes Camps of Canada’s Camp Lion Maxwell.
After working contracts as a travel nurse throughout Canada in Neonatal Intensive Care and Public Health, she came back home to stay during the pandemic and work at the Emergency Department at the IWK. Currently, in the camping off-season, she works at the IWK Health Centre in the Pediatric Medical Unit, ED and teaches at Dalhousie University’s School of Nursing. Wearing both her nursing hat and camping hat, she sits on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Association of Pediatric Nurses to "create healthier, safer camp policies and standards to improve the care for kids at camps!"
Camping is in her heart and soul. She loves singing “I’m a Nut”, building fires, and sleeping under the stars with her camp family. Jules has her bags packed, her sleeping bag rolled and can't wait to come back home to Sherbrooke Lake Camp for another summer of fun!
Summer Camp Director
"Hello! My name is Katherine (but I also go by Kat!) Waterbury. I am in my first year of the Bachelor of Education program at St. Francis Xavier University!
I have been a part of recreation programming working in various roles since I was in high school. Summer camp, outdoor recreation, active living, and well-being have been huge passions of mine. It led me on a path to do a Bachelors of Community Development and purse a speciality in teaching Physical Education. I have spent most of my summers outside and having fun in some sort of recreational capacity, whether it be through day camps, environmental education camps, or working on a campus farm!
I am a huge fan of summer outdoor recreation activities like hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, and camping, so I am very much looking forward to spending the summer immersed outside! I am excited to get to meet everyone and I hope everyone has an incredible summer full of fun, sun and faith exploration and reflection at Sherbrooke Lake with us!"
Leadership & Wellness Director
"Hello! My name is Jade, and I am 23 years old. I'm currently in the Bachelor of Education program at Acadia University, looking to become an English teacher.
I was born and raised in the South Shore, so Sherbrooke Lake is very close to my home! I've worked in day camps before, have attended overnight camps myself and am so excited to join the team at Sherbrooke Lake Camp!
I am very passionate about mental wellness and the outdoors, so I cannot wait to get started as the Leadership and Wellness Director this summer."
